Simply Skin: Learn How to Improve the Health and Appearance of Your Skin is a nonfiction health and beauty self-help book written by Angela Freeman. Anyone who is concerned about their skin, and everyone should be, will no doubt have encountered a bewildering profusion of products and services offered in their local beauty supplies store and online. But, not every product, no matter how highly touted, is suitable for every skin type or issue. In her book, Freeman aims to dispel the confusion many experience about skin care products and services. She begins with a discussion of skin, which is actually the largest organ of the body and is comprised of three layers. The outer layer, the epidermis, is composed of cells which slough off and renew themselves. While most of us are primarily concerned with that outermost layer, the three layers act together to protect the body against toxic and harmful effects of the environment.
Freeman sets out the parameters needed to determine your skin type and then discusses the different skin care regimens appropriate for each type. She differentiates between cleansing, exfoliating and moisturizing, and sets out how readers can easily use masks and facials at home and on a regular basis. Freeman also discusses sunblocks and sunscreens, and she demystifies SPF ratings. She also gives information on skin conditions such as rosacea and psoriasis, and discusses the treatment options that may assist in dealing with those conditions. Simply Skin is a well-written and informative guide to skin care. I especially appreciated the information she provides on sun care and the different types of sunblock and sunscreen products available. Her information on anti-inflammatory diets and their role in helping control skin conditions is also invaluable. Freeman’s writing style is easy and conversational, making reading her book a pleasurable as well as an informative experience. Simply Skin: Learn How to Improve the Health and Appearance of Your Skin is most highly recommended.
